Authoring Evil: Point of View, Theodicy and the Devil in Major Russian Novels
Term:

Project Summary

Explores the interrelation of narrative point of view and theodicy in the tradition of Russian novels primarily concerned with the depiction of evil: Gogol’s Dead Souls, Dostoevsky’s The Devils, Bely’s St. Petersburg, and Bulgakov’s Master and Margarita. Delineates a specifically Russian conception of the devil, and explores broader theoretical territory inasmuch as it isolates its approach to the narrative view point.
